know that the brain is continuously changing. we now know that each time you acquire a new skill or ability, the brain is actually changing its wiring. id is actually changing its functionality. is actually specializing. answer that specialization, your account for the development of the skill or ability in play. we know this occurs throughout life. in fact commit to the end of life, because we know we can improve our ability and we can acquire a new skill to the end of life. here we have an older woman who has acquired a skill in later life, basket weaving. we know that because she has developed a special ability at this point in life, she has remodeled her brain, and that accounts for her developing of this expertise. this is in play in our lives and throughout our lives because our lives are so richly varied from early childhood onward, we create, through billions of moments of brain change, an incredible individuation of ourselves so that through these changes, we have a special ability is shared by no one else in this room in exact form. we have special knowledge and underst
. and that is quite an achievement for us. on the change column, a little bit to the left, you will see that the margin of scores that changed from last year is somewhat small. we think most of the scores are insignificant statistically and the big point that we can see from the chart is almost all of the psas are able to approach or are well-above the 85% threshold we aim for. what we're trying to do for the public, of course, is to present outcomes that they can appreciate. you know, to provide parks that have great facilities, and so when we do our park evaluations we break them out into 14 features. these are the various aspects of the park the benchs, the children's play areas, hard scapes, lawns, that really denote the various types of maintenance and types of experiences that the users have. again they have been very stable. the changes since the last year are fairly small. and over the time you can see that the department is has really different focus to the area s where there is high use, the gardens, restrooms, athletic fields have improved. there are low use areas, wider in
-of surprising how quickly that has changed and clearly we are in different times not having to deal with this fiscal crisis that we have dealt with what does that give you the freedom do and what to focus on that might have been on the back burner with the emergency? [inaudible] first shot >>> so, i'm very caution to say it took a lot of hard work, i remember the day we walked into the office to a 40 million deficit we had to renegotiate our contract and peenings for the first time and pension that happens an issue in california were part of the state system and still not ready for the shake-out on the development and so, i'll like to think it's -- [inaudible/incomprehensible] level and i think that what it gibbs you time do is to start working on some of these dreams and really give development opportunities and that is what it's like despite the evidence -- the general fund and in our economic outlet team and that we -- [inaudible] and working and -- of that and i know -- and i worked on chinese investments because we are looking at capital investment and is for the amazing grow
of both the expanding economy and schedule changes in rules. a comparison average of about 18% over the past 40 years. at the same time, if current laws remain in place, federal spending will fall relative to the size of the economy and then rise again. the decline can be traced to be discretionary funding. and to a drop off that sense to go up when the economy is weak. -- that tend to go up when the economy is weak.but later in the decade, spending turns up again . part of this is the return of interest rates to more normal levels and our projection that would push up interest payments to nearly their highest share of gdp in did years. another of the decade a significant expansion of federal health-care programs and rising health-care costs per person will push up spending on the largest federal programs, social security, medicare, medicaid. by 2020.-- by 2023, it reaches 23% a g.d.p. what does this mean for federal debt that we expect that will reach 76% of gdp this year, at the highest since 1950. we protect it will be higher than the 39% average. it will be rising again as part
when the ethics commission itself, changed our practice, to put the 150-word statements in the body of the document, we did not do it because we thought that we were in any kind of violation up until then. we did it because we thought that it was responsive, because we thought it would reduce frustration and the members of the public would find it evidence of good faith. but not because we thought that it was required. so i think that it is a good thing to see that the library commission is now prepared to raise for its future practice doing the same thing. but i don't see it as required or nor do i see it as abrogating the filing, if there were a filing before now that would not solve that, i don't think that there was such a violation, i think that mr. hartz was right about that. on two other points that were raised and then i will wrap up. the statement that the 150-word statements or summaries as the ordinance provides, are not generated or validated by the city commission, that whose minutes they are part of, does seem to me to be a useful notification to the public. to underst
to intervene, to change the behavior, to provide opportunity for services. we know what is going on happen. they will become another incarceration statistic. and not only them. but for that second and third generation in the families. having worked in the prison system for years, it was nothing to walk on the yard and see three generations of families out there. it's such a privilege to work in san francisco, because we are creating a system that includes all the partners. the community-based organization and the sheriff system and the collaborative court system and the d.a. and the chief of police. and that's what it takes, when people talking about changing the system. everyone working together collaboratively and unselfishly, keeping our eye on the prize. we have implemented evidence-based model of adult probation. all that means is that everything we do is based on evidence. motivational interview. and the type of services. and risks needs instrument tools. so we know what that individuals's needs are. but we have taken it a step forward for this population. and we are the only probati
because he could not control his behavior, congress in most state jurisdictions changed the law, got rid of the lack of emotional test, the a.l.i. test and now in most jurisdictions, the nontest requires that you demonstrate that you can't distinguish right from wrong. so now we have, and again, the law uses science for the law's own purposes, but what is problematic here is the disconnect. from the criminal side, if you lack emotional control, you go to prison because you can't win under the test because the test doesn't apply. when you walk out of prison and you lack emotional control, you get civilly committed. so what we have is a fundamental disconnect between how we view philosophy of free will and human control on the criminal side versus the civil side and not surprisingly on both sides "the state wins" because on the criminal side you go to prison and on the civil side, you get incarcerated civilly. >> i don't think that's much of a disconnect. i think -- so i agree with you the test has changed. that's not what i'm talking about. if you look at the kind of distribution of behav
comment be changed to accurately reflect the public comments by speakers and have that denied by the library commission i took to the sunshine task force and on january 25th, 2011 i received a letter of determination, 10054, from the library commission that they stated that in the minutes means in the body of the minutes. that is what the law says and the reading of it says that and that is what is ruled. >> in the case that we are actually talking about, which is the second case on here, which i then took or i asked for the library commission discussed it and said can we do this and mr. herrera said you can and the city attorney said that it is okay and they decided to discontinue and disregard the order of the task force. i then brought the case against specifically mr. herrera and under the facts and findings of fact and conclusions of law, the task force stated specifically that the task force further noted that the statement should be in the body of the minutes to prevent the public officials from unlawfully abridging critical public comment. >> at that point, and i made
really there should be some promise or some commitment from the agency to make the change a policy change, a permanent change. and thank you very much. >> who would have thought that ten years after the sunshine ordinance was adopted we would be arguing over a legal term called attachment. the plain reading, the ordinary reading that any person would get would mean the inclusion in the body of the minutes. and that is what the public probably understood in 1999, when it adopted the sunshine ordinance. the concept is attachment is really a legal concept and it is actually said as attached hereto and incorporated herein and we don't get that i think that it is quasi legal ordinances in. the government guide is an unsupported comment from the city attorney, there is no opinion, there is no justification for it and it is not worth the sense that it is written on. if it were, supported with some legal basis, of case law, differently. different results. it is the task force's job to determine these issues, not the city attorney's. that is what it is there for. it is the determinations are enfor
intention to cancel or change the format of the planned discussion of the golden gate to be held at the common wealth club, any e-mails were instantly deletes not because of the deep commitment to the record retention policy, but because ginsberg knows that the sunshine law requires disclosures he is not stupid. had it been true that the destruction was implementing the policy and this should have been stated to mr. wooding at the outset. the disclosure that there were once e-mails but they were indeed destroyed according to regulations would have led to the next requirement in the sunshine ordinance which is to assist in referring him to someone who could help him with his records request. miss gong should have referred him to the department of technology did recovering the deleted e-mails since her technology staff could not help. let us not kid ourselves mr. ginsberg attempted a cover up of an ill advised attempt to influence the private entity to have a open panel discussion about the development in the famous park and wanted to use his position to exert power over the public
saturday night. 17-year old hanren chang. was crossing sloat boulevard. when she was struck. a student who knew chang says, many people are now trying to cope with the devastating loss. "there for each other" be what she was very involved so it is really sad to see her growth. in such a tragic way. everybody is in a state of morning. the teachers have been supportive and everybody is in -- mourning... together. >> pam: hanren chang was a junior at lowell high school in san francisco. police say, the driver of the car stopped at the scene. and was arrested on suspicion of d-u-i. >> new at 8.more set-backs for giants fan bryan stow as he recovers from a serious brain injury. it's been almost two years since stow was badly beaten outside dodgers stadium.and stow's family says his condition is getting worse. stow recently spent a week in the hospital. more blood clots were found in one of his legs, he was diagnosed with a bladder infection, and surgery stow needs to help with bone growth is being post-poned until his condition improves. this family says on his website that stow is more easily
most and that is the next step, change medicare from a guaranteed program into a voucher. >> that's right. you remember paul ryan. >> we're also going to repeal obama care and replace it with real reform. >> yeah, that didn't quite pan out as he'd hoped but those ryan reforms are still on the agenda, including a potential hike in the medicare retirement age. back to his post as budget chairman, ryan will unveil the republican's budget next week and the headlines really do tell the story. paul ryan floats change to medicare plan. gop centrists balk at ryan medicare shift. republican goal to balance budget could mean deep cuts to health programs. new york republican peter king tells "the washington post," quote, i know a number of people who have real concerns about where this is going. one of the last presidents to balance the budget was herbert hoover. oh, yes, happy days are here again. nbc's kristin welker joins us live from the white house. kristin, one imagines that each day the president wakes up believing that the white house -- sorry, that house republicans will see sense a
positive -- it makes people aware, it makes people take initiative to change things, for example? last year there was a video that went viral on youtube about the guy that was taking charge in uganda. and i had never heard about that. all of my friends were talking about it and nobody knew about this. and now all of these celebrities are starting charities and i know that there is controversy on where that money was going. but my point is there a way to make the shooters aware of what is going on? >> one of the positive things is all the people wanting to donate. a lot of good can come out of publicity. but you just have to take the killer out of the picture. that's the problem. so i think giving a good example, i did a study with my colleague of people magazine. we looked at every cover from the 70s up to a few years ago. when they first started, it was all about people who did good things. they had people and politicians who did the right thing. medical discoveries, astronauts who did great things, here it is. and over time it started to get very negative. after a while, the majority of t
changing -- striking out tier b and putting back a for the affordable housing requirement. so, that is the one amendment that i want to introduce today. and i want to give a special shout out to angelica cabanda, fernando and [speaker not understood] who actually worked with us and brought this idea to us and we were able to run the numbers and get some consensus throughout the community on this. mr. cory teague. >> just want to be clear. the amendment last week was to increase the residential impact fee tier up to tier 2 or essentially remove the reference to tier 1 which would revert it back to tier 2 and decrease the affordability from tier b to tier a. i want to -- yeah, i want to clarify. i think you're saying -- >> tier c. >> -- is to move back to tier b where its was originally, or are you wanting to go higher? tier b is what was originally exposed in the western soma plan with the residential impact fees bound to tier 1. >> okay. >> so, i'm not sure -- >> thank you for that clarification. >> i wasn't sure if you were poi posing to keep tier b and pull the residential i
of the things i want to point out is that in terms of the changes currently taking place in california's criminal justice system is that we have embarked on a very, very large experiment and that's called realignment. prison population in california is going to approach by -- or sometime next year the federal mandate of 130,000. we've already released some 50,000 individuals to serve their time locally, and these offenses that we were talking about here are currently in the list of offenses that were to be served in county jails now. and if the notion here is to provide services and treatment to these individuals from a practical point of view, and i lean heavily on my experience as a misdemeanor prosecutor for all those years when we did possession offenses, when we tried many, many under the influence offenses, especially heroin, i don't see that under the current system that reducing these penalties from felony to misdemeanor is going to have any incentive for this population to obtain treatment. i also do not agree that under this measure that locally there will be additional money
i started because, like, i change my avatar every single day just because it was something to do. i think it's just taking the next step into technology and treatment and integrating that into an effective way for young kids to approach treatment. this is a technology-based generation and, therefore, they're encountering technology on a daily basis whether it be social media, courses online, schoolwork, projects. so this addresses their treatment environment in a context that they are very familiar with. jonathan, when and how should a parent first intervene? we have heard from justin and his experience. but overall, what-we know the signs. we already talked about them. how should they intervene with a potentially problem situation? you know, tami used an important word, which was to have the conversation. i think that is crucial to begin to talk about what they see, what their concerns are and what is going on. it can be very challenging because, you know, as i think bridget and justin mentioned, adolescence is a time of experimentation. it's a time of risk taking. so, you know, on
-- and we have cards that you could fill out and questions. this promises to be a year of reform and change like we have never seen, and we now see prisoner reentry programs being implemented. we're still spending too much money and resources and not enough on rehabilitation and reentry. this november, the voters will decide on limiting the three strikes law. issues and measures long overdue. it is clear there is much more that needs to be done. according to a study that was published this month -- since 1989, 2000 people have been wrongfully incarcerated and they served collectively, 10,000 years. an average of 11 years person. i would like to thank the people who made this summit possible. memoranda -- amy devon -- many volunteers and all of our speakers and panelists. i would like to thank the co- sponsors, and the bar association of san francisco. i would like to thank them for their help and support. it is my pleasure to introduce the president elect of the bar association of san francisco. they provide conflict attorneys to handle cases when a defender is not available. >> i am the pr
, however, of the vatican's traditional reluctance to change. >> ideas that challenge the norm are considered an attack on the church and its teachings usually. this is not an attack. it is just about thinking differently. >> that way of thinking was harshly criticized by the pope during his visits to spain. the spanish government's implementation of sweeping reforms to civil society has been a major source of irritation to the vatican. in 2005, spain became the third country in europe to allow homosexuals to marry and adopt children, a development that jesus is particularly proud of. as a gay man and devout catholic, the words of the pope were deeply hurtful. >> we are people who have rights, and we have to insist on them. we do not need the pope preaching to us in spain about our decisions. >> there are two sides to contemporary spain -- liberal and conservative. the latter includes a special on of the catholic church founded in madrid in the 1920's -- special arm of the catholic church. it has substantial influence at the many schools that its members run. the statements of
clearly are not going to come up with $50,000 to make the changes, at least not in year one. but some of it you can do in year one. that percentage is not in a fixed amount. that usually gets 15% of your gross revenues could be assessed as being available to you to make these repairs. they will aggregate that over time, so if you cannot make all your repairs in year one, you can make some, but it may take you three or four years before you have to make the changes, but there is no defense to making the changes. even if it is a historical building. that is not a defense. when i get involved, it is because 90% of the time, the tenant is the only one who gets the notice, though the notice is addressed both to the tenant and landlord. next thing you see, you are handed a piece of paper by some stranger, and it is a lawsuit. then you need to find a lawyer. probably 90% of these cases are in federal court. it becomes much more costly to get a lawyer involved. most lawyers charged somewhere between $5,000 or $10,000 to get involved in some of these cases. you need to file a formal answer in
to occur as you develop a code change to be able to do some of the lower interest loans, so i am going to try to see if there is a way that i can communicate with that without jumping forward past your process of coming up with policy and taking it to the board of supervisors. i think that anything that comes from the controller's office has a lot of weight in terms of future financial policies. any exacting any change is not really exacting, but encouraging any changes to occur with the mayor's office and our office and the controller's office and so that i think there is a lot of possibility of what we will come out of the work that they are doing in terms of the reserves. >> any questions? >> any questions for the deputy? >> no? >> oh,, yeah, commissioner mar. >> just a quick question on it. >> if the city pretty much up in terms of their testing in terms of for the electrical inspecters or do we have a list or we waiting for them to do the tests? >> so this is the majority of the tests that we are doing now, all have to do with position-based testing, so we have to work with them a
the law having changed there. it puts the federal government in an odd place. states have voted one way. the federal government trying to figure out how to work arounder around that. many have acknowledged that the country is in a serious conversation about marijuana. the president, you remember, went on to--spoke with barbara walters and had this to say. >> do you think that marijuana should be legalized? >> i wouldn't go that far but i think at this point washington and colorado, you've seen the voters speak on this issue. as it is, the federal government has a lot to do when it comes to criminal prosecutions. it does not sense from a prioritization point of view for us to focus on recreational drug users in a state that has already said that under state law that is legal. >> michael: that confusion puts to light by "huffington post" in a poll they have there that say 51% of adults should be exempt from federal drug laws, and 30% say those laws should be enforced in colorado. it becomes for the justice department an issue how if the state says one thing the federal department should d
on something like gay rights opinions are changing fast. on the other side of that question, how cognizant are the justices of how their actions shape the country's view of the court? the country's view of that institution that they represent and its legitimacy in our system of government. a couple of months ago former justice sandra day o'connor did a interview in parade magazine of all place in which she was asked about public approval ratings for supreme court justices. public approval of the justices had dropped from something like two-thirds, roughly 66% in the late 1980s down to 44% now. justice o'connor responded by saying she thought that drop was disturbing, and that, quote, i thinkurmre may have been a turning point. she publishes a remarkable photograph that have i not seen anywhere else before i saw it in this book. it's taken on inauguration day this 2001. justice o'connor, her husband on the right, justice scalia and chief justice rehnquist are waiting for the inauguration of george w. bush to start. an inauguration made possible by virtue of the decision bush v. gore. and i
in american energy, that we're doing everything that we can to combat the threat of climate change, that we're going to be creating jobs and economic opportunity in the first place. they are going to be a great team. these are some of my top priorities going forward. >> ifill: moniz is an m.i.t. physicist who runs an energy initiative on new ways to produce power and curb emissions. he also served as undersecretary of energy during the clinton administration. mccarthy already works in the administration as assistant administrator for the e.p.a.'s office of air and radiation. she has run state environmental agencies in connecticut and massachusetts, working for five governors including mitt romney. moniz and mccarthy would replace outgoing cabinet members steven chu and lisa jackson. early last month the president also tapped business executive sally jewel to replace ken salazar as interior secretary. the nominees face major challenges. one imminent decision involves debate over approval of the keystone ex-seal pipeline that would move crude oil from canada to the gulf. the project has drawn
, concerning seismic standards and making conforming changes; making environmental findings; making findings pursuant to california health and safety code, section 17958.5; and directing the clerk of the board to forward this legislation to the california building standards commission. >> okay. president chiu is the sponsor of the legislation. >> thank you, mr. chair. this is pretty simple legislation that would amend our city's building code to require that higher levels of building repair retrofit would be required if there is significant and disproportionate damage caused by relatively small earthquake. these code changes were recommended by the committee action plan for seismic safety otherwise known as caps and have been supported by the building inspection commission and the advisory committee. i know there are a number of staffers from dbi who are prepared to talk about it. colleagues, if folks have questions, but let me ask, does dbi or does anyone from the city side want to make a brief explanation of why we're here? >> good afternoon, supervisors. thank you, president chiu. my name
, but before we get started i would like to welcome superviser chang. she is the vice chair, correct. >> this meeting will come to order, welcome my name is cohen and to my right is chang to the right is supervisor campos. and the crowd goes wild. thank you, thank you very much. >> madam clerk, i want to thank sfgtv and thank you for making us look beautiful and sounding smart. please silence all cell phones and complete any speaker cards to be included as part of the file should be submitted to the committee clerk and each member will be allotted the same number of minutes to speak. the items will appear on the march 12, 2013 board meeting agenda unless otherwise stated. >> excellent. i'm so excited. okay, could you please call item one. >> item number one is a hearing controller office park maintenance report for fiscal year 2011 and 2012. and parks throughout the city. >> are there any opening remarks? seeing none let's begin. >> i am sorry, there is one, excuse me. >> good morning, everyone, so i just wanted to introduce hearing item that was previously introduced under superviso
changes for our city some of which have vexed for years >> years. i'm proud that together we through innovation and we foerjd our way ahead. to the city commissioners and to the department heads and to our friends in the business, labor you think non-profit and other communities who spent countless hours with us in negotiations and to the great people of san francisco who rewarded us with your support at ballet in san francisco thank you, very much. together we're putting san francisco back on the right track and building a solid foundation for all our residents. my fellow san francisco's we're living in a time of astonishing innovation and unlimited process we're driving that innovation and for or against the future right here right now not just for san francisco but for the whole world. within the lab of our technologies we're developing techniques will will save lives. to our market district we're providing the world with tools to live in the chewing print with 3-d or even topple dock - we're fashioned our food that bears the label of san francisco. a stamp yes. a stamp and mark
take great offense to that. maybe it's just a change of emphasis maybe he's more focused on the short term and i'm more focused on the long term. but i think paul said on the show and he believes it, congress can't do two things at once. it can't grow the economy now and focus on the long term. i would say i was influenced by paul krugman and who what he wrote back in the 1990s, what he wrote in materially 2000 united statess. in the 1990s, i've got to say, you would have been a member of newt's anti-debt party. >> no. >> in the 1990s you look at your books, your writings and you said it was startingly irresponsible for the federal government to run deficits because you talked about this coming army of baby boomers and you've said it was going to hit in 2012 and that's when we needed to be ready. >> but the point is it was irresponsible to be running deficits when the economy was at full employment. and it didn't need the support from the federal government. we mised that window. we didn't do it. we didn't pay down the debt when the economy was fairly strong. now we're in a situation
it will be changed in the smeet. basically what the speaker wanted the speaker got and that is we now have an austerity budget and that's going to be, i think, a killer to the economy, to job growth. what the house gop is now suggesting in terms of keeping the governments open is they'll provide some flexibility for the pentagon, but they don't want to provide the flexibility for any other part of the budget. why be indiscriminant in these cuts to education, to health care, to research, to other vital program that's we're going to provide flexibility for the defense department and we should provide flexibility in every other department. but frankly, i think the whole sequester in this whole aus tirty budget is a real mistake and ought to be done away with and we ought to move to a balanced program. >> as we look at wall street and we put up this graphic, so everybody can watch what we're watching, seeing the dow up 150 points, opening the a all-time highs today, that's wall street. main street is a completely different picture where we have blue collar everyday americans herg our elected o
in terms of where -- between these two men. >> can i give obama -- go ahead. >> here's what could change now. i think part of the affection for biden that a lot of people have is sort of predicated on the idea he didn't really want anything. he was pretty old when he took the job. nobody really thought he was going to try to succeed obama as president, and the first term it wasn't really an issue. i think that might change. i think biden does want something. i think biden has gotten kind of interested in being president. in fact, this scuttle but that he thinks he is running. it's a private joke he has with himself. nobody else thinks he would be a very strong candidate, but that changes the dynamic. if you are tying to get that job, people relate to you very differently than if you are at the end of your career or helping someone else. the president has been making a number of cabinet -- there's a lot of talk about obama ushering out the form of rivals, and he is bringing out his folks. at this point it's a mixed wag, if you will. i mean, in john kerry, he doesn't have someone who is pa
of the strategies for bringing the scores up for some of these parks is really changing the trend would be very useful. >> mr. general manager. >> sure, supervisor. again, we are not particularly defensive about the data. >> no >> it is sort of helpful for us and we do guide it. >> i think that district nine, you know, in every district is a little different and the parks are a little different and each park has a unique set of challenges and one of the more encouraging stats are over all cleanliness and district nine remains as one of highest rated districts and i think that the over all scores were about 11, 12 or 88 percent, and while it was a two percent drop off from 10-11 it is up from where we started in 56 and 67. so i think that we are keeping an eye on it but one of the things that we need to understand is that these scores are snapshots in time as i think that they explained. and i would be concerned if there were a continuing downward trend. i think that 9 seems to be sort of kind of right there for the most part. garfield has its particular set of challenges as i think that you kno
to as the revolution of 1800, because it was such a dramatic change in the other party coming in. he did not attend the in migration. some thought he was being spiteful. he had to catch an early stage to get back. part of it was a man who, in a sense, he felt the trade him and defeated him. i think that was probably the hardest thing to get. >> the couple that's been so many years apart and the development of their country and now had this opportunity to live together, how long did they live together in the white house years? >> abigail lived to 1818. he lived together for 18 years. >> how was it for them? >> they were idyllic for them and very difficult in some ways. abigail refused to visit her daughter because she said i can't leave john. during that time, her daughter had a mastectomy in 1811 without anesthesia. >> that is so hard to think of. >> she ultimately died two years later. it was a time of satisfaction and peace and also very great disruptions in their lives. they had problems with grandchildren and children and constant drama going on. one grandson went and fought in the revolution i
as electrification and high-speed rail move forward. so, i know we'll continue to work hard to make positive change. colleagues, are there any additional comments? then why don't we have a motion to continue this item to the call of the chair. can we take that without objection? that will be the order. madam clerk, are there any other items before the committee? >> no other matter. >> then we are adjourned. thank you.
